I know, I know… Most of my posts involve children’s activities, but once in a while I will slip in some totally random posts, because that’s how I roll.
And you can actually use the following as a learning activity!! Think Measuring, mixing, following directions….
Make Your Own Laundry Detergent
Yup, you read that correctly. I make my own laundry detergent. I started doing it a few months ago, and I doubt we will ever go back to using regular detergent. I got the idea from some friends of mine when we were discussing the little things we do to save money. And believe me, making your own detergent will save you a TON.
What you will need:
- Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (NOT Baking Soda!! They are different!)
- Borax 20 Mule Team
- Ivory Bar Soap or Fels Naptha Bar Soap (I use Ivory)
- 1 cup measuring cup
- Cheese Grater
- Plastic Storage Container
- Food processor or Blender (optional)
